A step-by-step treatment strategy
Written by a highly respected and innovative surgeon, this book presents an unconventional implant treatment strategy for the esthetic restoration of anterior teeth that has proven effective over years of clinical experience. In addition to reviewing biologic principles, treatment planning, indications, esthetic analysis, and prosthetic options, the author focuses on factors such as gentle tooth extraction, precise implant positioning, criteria for one- and two-stage implant placement, and most importantly, a wide range of soft tissue management techniques in his approach.

‘Inventarisatie (mond)gezondheidsproblemen van ouderen’ is een praktisch boek over de integrale zorg voor ouderen met het accent op de mondzorg. De inhoud richt zich vooral op tandartsen en mondhygiënisten die de zorgverlening aan (kwetsbare) ouderen willen verbeteren. Aan de hand van een gestandaardiseerde probleeminventarisatie komen onderwerpen aan de orde die voor de hedendaagse praktijkvoering vereist zijn. Zorgverlenen aan ouderen begint bij kennis en inzicht. Mondzorgverleners zullen de komende jaren in toe nemende mate zorg moeten verlenen aan kwetsbare ouderen. Dit zal bij voorkeur op basis van een integraal zorg(leef)plan dienen te gebeuren. Het interpreteren van meetinstrumenten en het opstellen van een mondzorgplan – wezenlijk verschillend van een tandheelkundig behandelplan– zijn competenties die iedere tandarts dient te beheersen. Dit boek behandelt kort de essentiële onderwerpen die daarvoor nodig zijn en sluit aan bij de vervolgopleidingen in de gerodontologie. Er zijn twee mondzorgplannen als voorbeeld opgenomen.

In the observation of nature smile, the complexity of facial dynamics, the various biotypes of gums and teeth – these are the natural references that challenge us to find the most beautiful esthetic The concept of biomimicry, more precisely cosmetic dentistry, is based on this search Technology has revolutionized cosmetic dentistry and helped make biomimicry a reality In many dental procedures, nature and function together provide a unique set of references.
Clinical and Laboratory Technique for Class I/II/III with Aesthetics
Abe, Jiro / Iwaki, Kenji / Sudo, Tetsuya / Kokubo, Kyoko
The “Suction-Effective Mandibular Complete Denture Fabrication Technique” advocated by Dr. Jiro Abe has reached the common sense area by the success of many clinicians who learned this technique all over the world. And now, attention is focused on the application of this technique to refractory cases. Therefore, in this book, as well as the basis of the mandibular suction effective technique, Angle’s Class 2, Class 3 commentary on how to cope with difficult cases. It also refers to the production of aesthetic complete dentures. This is the essential book for dental physicians/ dental technicians who engaged in complete denture treatment.

Choosing the right approach to endodontic treatment is important because failure can lead directly to extraction. Endodontic surgery is a therapeutic solution that is too often overlooked, which is surprising given that it is a reliable technique with a very high success rate. Not only is endodontic surgery more conservative than conventional endodontic treatment, but it can also be used to resolve difficulties that are inaccessible by conventional approach. Written by two specialists in the discipline, this book outlines predictable surgical strategies and presents more than a hundred clinical cases through each stage of treatment. This book provides concrete and practical information so that endodontists who want to implement surgical techniques can approach their first cases with the knowledge they need.
An A to Z Guided Workflow
This atlas synthesizes the latest technologic advances in esthetic dentistry and shows how to successfully integrate them into clinical practice. Part I begins with a chapter on dental photography that focuses on the correct settings and use of equipment needed to obtain high-quality images for documentation and communication with patients and the laboratory. Subsequent chapters present the steps involved in the esthetic preview, which provides the opportunity to try out a proposed treatment and make adjustments before undertaking any procedures, increasing patient acceptance and satisfaction.
Mucogingival esthetic surgery is dedicated to the treatment of mucogingival esthetic alterations. These may be caused by gingival recession, often in association with abrasion and/or root caries or, conversely, altered passive eruption. The aims of mucogingival esthetic surgery may also be to augment gingival width and height around prostheses or implants and to fill out edentulous ridges. Techniques for edentulous ridge augmentation
are addressed in the second volume. This volume describes and illustrates mucogingival surgical techniques as applied to native teeth or implants, with the chief aim of satisfying the patient’s esthetic requirements.
Etiology, Diagnosis, and Treatment
Soares, Paulo V. / Grippo, John O. (Ed.)
Cervical dentin hypersensitivity (CDH) and noncarious cervical lesions (NCCLs) are common findings in modern clinical practice. Although research has shown that NCCLs are a multifactorial condition involving the three mechanisms of stress, biocorrosion, and friction, few dentists know how to treat them effectively. Similarly, CDH has been an enigma for many years, and research has focused on etiology instead of treatment. In addition, little attention has been given to their mutual etiologic mechanisms of cervical stress concentration from occlusal loading and endogenous/exogenous biocorrosion. Therefore, this book approaches CDH and NCCLs together and outlines the history, mechanisms, and, most important, the clinical methods of treatment for these pathologies. It is about time we as dentists learn how to treat and prevent these conditions in clinical practice. This involves greater diagnostic effort and alteration of treatment protocols to (1) reduce dietary intake/exposure to acids, (2) manage reflux diseases, and (3) consider the significance of occlusal therapies. After reading this book, the student or clinician will be able to diagnose and treat clinical cases of NCCLs and CDH.
Indications, Limits and Clinical Protocols with the Adjunctive Use of Diode Laser
This text presents detailed information about “gold standard” patient examination methods and clear clinical treatment protocols, reviewing periodontal instruments, techniques, and procedures, from the first visit to reevaluation, culminating in long-lasting effective maintenance therapy. Following proper diagnosis, nonsurgical periodontal treatment is characterized by home care and effective debridement. The patient’s hygiene performance is the most significant factor influencing the success of any dental treatment and maintenance of clinical stability. Therapeutic options should always be modulated in a specific, personalized manner for each patient and each site in the oral cavity. Mechanical and manual instrumentation is technique sensitive. The ultimate goal is, without exception, to remove the pathogenic noxa in the most complete and effective manner, respecting tissue integrity and biology. The highly instructive clinical photographs and numerous drawings explain in detail how to acquire or correct operating techniques, adopting methods of instrumentation refined by the author.
TMJ pathology related to occlusion: etiopathology and treatment
Includes CD-ROM with more than 200 Animations
This book offers a meticulous analysis of occlusion, one of the most important specialties in dentistry, because a healthy stomatognathic system depends on it. The book covers the dentition, tooth and implant bone, gingiva, tooth and implant-borne prostheses, masticatory muscles, ligaments, TMJ, articular capsules, disks, etc.
The problems that can lead to “malocclusion” depend on patient emotional stress, grinding, clenching, and the jaw being out of occlusion and its proper position. The book also covers referred pain, which can mimic joint symptoms caused by neck and masticatory muscle problems. Headaches and facial pain may be diagnosed as being atypical and may be really due to occlusionrelated muscle problems (masseters, temporalis, etc.), including neck muscles. There are many!

While most dentists do not perform their own histologic testing, all dentists must be able to recognize conditions that may require biopsy or further treatment outside the dentist office. This book does not pretend to be an exhaustive resource on oral pathology; instead, it seeks to provide the practicing clinician with enough information to help identify or at least narrow down the differential for every common lesion or oral manifestation of disease seen in daily practice as well as what to do about them. Organized by type of lesion, mass, or disease, each pathologic entity presented includes the nature of the disease; its predilections, clinical features, radiographic presentation, differential diagnosis, and microscopic features; and the suggested course of action for the dental practitioner as well as the standard treatment regimen. In keeping with the concise nature of the text, all but the rarest disease entities include at least one photograph to illustrate the clinical condition. This book distills the comprehensive information from Dr Marx and Dr Diane Stern’s award-winning pathology reference text (Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology: A Rationale for Diagnosis and Treatment, ed 2 [Quintessence, 2012]) into practical guidelines for restorative and general dentists everywhere.
